    There was a plan last year to use sea mines, let them swim down the river to hit the dam.

    No, this was no recon in force. This was the regime being incompetent and throwing away lives and equipment, not that I'm complaining of course Twisted Evil

    If the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station is blown up, Crimea will be left without water supply for 10-15 years, and maybe forever. — Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Danilov. wrote:

    How do these retards manage to make it through a day is rather baffling.

    So now the Russians are being blamed for the dam break. Weird, I remember last night how this was a coup for the Nazi Banderastan.

    A funny thought.
    That means they have lost about a quarter of the tanks west supplied taking them out from every hole they could dig. Not only supplied, bot promised included Laughing
    As for APC and other technicals, the number is insane, it is the same the west supplied.
    Last but not least, human losses euals 10% of all the manpower they have trained in the west for the last half a year.

    Yeah, victory at full swing.

    Nasty precedent set by Kiev

    Fortunately for them the Russians have morals and ethics.

    I doubt Leopards are there, although MOD can be trusted,

    The Jaeger units armed with Leopards won't come into the fight until the 1st and 2nd waves of cannon fodder are ground to dust

    If they can't even break through the small villages on the first line, they won't commit the western trained units to the offensive

    We should wait for the bulk of fodder to charge the line

    Doesn’t look like Soviet tank. Whats the second target? ‘Pryamoy’ (direct hit) he said, but doesn’t look like they hit that dark blob (infantry?)

    The originally published shows two hits.
    The second is so distant that only being insane can claim to see anything there.
    But interesting was that hit is clearly catastrophic, and in a way different from the Soviet heritage tanks/ammo cookoff.

    And it's so blurry. which hard to make out what it is.

    We had case of AMX-10RC being thought as Leopard, better wait until there actually closer look to the wreckage.

    hey hey propaganda form the ass where the sun doesn't shine sundowne and diabe something. any more questions who did it? didnt they foresee it in your nazi booklets?

    Well well such a zrada from owners ! Der Stürmer Washington Post: ay year ago...



    Russia had to arm and feed its forces via three crossings: the Antonovsky Bridge, the Antonovsky railway bridge and the Nova Kakhovka dam, part of a hydroelectric facility with a road running on top of it.
    []

    “There were moments when we turned off their supply lines completely, and they still managed to build crossings,” Kovalchuk said. “They managed to replenish ammunition. … It was very difficult.”

    Kovalchuk considered flooding the river. The Ukrainians, he said, even conducted a test strike with a HIMARS launcher on one of the floodgates at the Nova Kakhovka dam, making three holes in the metal to see if the Dnieper’s water could be raised enough to stymie Russian crossings but not flood nearby villages.

    The test was a success, Kovalchuk said, but the step remained a last resort. He held off.

    I don't think either side took out the dam, I heard the real suspected cause was mines that got washed down the stream from both sides trying to cover banks and enough of them just gathered and caused the collapse and that does make sense.

    Makes sense Ukraine would try to use it has a PR move, This is war you will use anything you can get.

    Ukraine Launches Long-Awaited Offensive in Several Directions, Fails in All - Russian Defense Chief, 06.06.2023.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Kiev has launched a long-promised offensive in different sectors of the front in the past three days, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Tuesday.

    "Within the past three days, the Ukrainian regime has launched a long-promised offensive in different sectors of the front, concentrating a large amount of equipment and human resources for this purpose," Shoigu said.

    He clarified that the Ukrainian forces tried to attack in 7 directions with five brigades on June 5 but were stopped after losing over 1,600 soldiers and 28 tanks.

    “On June 5, the Kiev regime attempted an offensive in seven directions with the forces of five brigades. They was stopped, suffered even more significant losses: more than 1,600 military personnel, 28 tanks, including 8 Leopards and 3 AMX-10 wheeled tanks, 136 units of other military equipment, including 79 foreign," Shoigu said.

    The minister added that enemy attacks were foiled, while Russian soldiers showed “heroism and courage.”

    According to Shoigu, Ukraine failed to reach its goals in the offensive as it suffered “significant and incomparable” losses.

    Shoigu admitted that 71 Russian soldiers were killed during the Ukrainian offensive, adding that the military also lost 15 tanks and 9 infantry fighting vehicles.

    "In total … 71 servicepeople were killed, 210 were injured. 15 tanks, 9 infantry fighting vehicles, 2 vehicles and 9 guns were destroyed," Shoigu said.

    Well this is good news. Apparently only the upper part of the dam with the control gates was  destroyed. The reservoir dam foundation is still solid. That will limit the flooding as the entire reservoir won't flush out.
